PURCHASE A LICENSE

Shizuoka Meiji 1880s Unknown
Arai Ryokan, a famed Japanese Inn in Shuzenji (修善寺村) in Izu Province (伊豆国, Izu-no kuni), a former province of Japan in what is now Shizuoka Prefecture.

The quasi-Western building was built in 1881 (Meiji 14) and quickly became a symbol of the onsen (hot spring) town of Shuzenji. The building still exists and became a national registered cultural asset in 1998 (Heisei 10). It is known as Seishu-ro (青州楼).

The ryokan is the location of the Dancing Girl of Izu (伊豆の踊子), a short story written in 1926 (Showa 1) by Nobel Prize winner Yasunari Kawabata.
